Default vizio e552vle stream from PC

I need the help of some hackers or something. If my TV can to Netflix and YouTube,then it can stream from my windows 7 computer.

Here is what is happening.
I turn on the TV brand new factory setup. I scroll through the web apps installed. I get to media the TV has USB ports so I know I have something there, I connect the USB and it pops up and populates. I see my computers on mynetwork. I connect to them. It will not show any files: no pictures no music no video. I turn off the TV and turn it back on and it doesn't want to find my computers anymore. I do a factory reset and it finds my computers again, I turn it off and on again and the same situation. The TV is programedto block my network and is suppressing the ability to stream from my PC tomy TV please help me find a work around. (If I wanted to put everything ona USB and run back and forth then I wouldn't be asking for help.)

Not necessarily, and I don't see anything in the manual to suggest
that it supports video streaming from a networked PC. All I saw on the
subject were references to Images (.jpg extension) and Audio (.mp3
extension), and even then it appears that the capability may be
limited to an attached USB device. Other than that, the Internet Apps
section has some info, but that's apparently not what you're trying to
do.

Page 44 of the manual that I looked at says you have free lifetime
tech support by phone, web, or email. Have you asked the folks at
Vizio?

What mechanism are you expecting it to use to find files on your computers?
Have you tried looking for firmware updates for it?

Hacker, no. You need a DLNA router, such as the Dlink unit. It has a
USB port that you can hook up Network Attached Storage, and it will
support DLNA feeds to the Visio TV. I don't believe that DLNA is
supported on your PC drives or Operating systems.

Try running Serviio on your computer. It's free; it's a Java
application. It's easy to set up. If that doesn't work, then your tv
isn't UPnP/DLNA/whatever compatible.

No DLNA support.

Nothing found for Vizio on the DLNA search site:
<http://www.dlna.org/consumer-home/look-for-dlna/product-search>

The easiest way to obtain this feature is to add a stand alone media
player:
<http://wdc.com/en/products/products.aspx?id=320>
<http://homehdmediaplayer.com/?p=214>
which will do everything your Vizio TV should have done.

That last link is a pretty good article. I have the WD Live.
Unfortunately, Playon and TVersity are Winders-only products; I
understand that they're very good.

For the unwashed, there's Mediatomb, which works, but isn't under
"active" development (although they claim that they'll get back to it
once they've finished college or something).

http://mediatomb.cc/

It's a bit picky to set up, and it's incredibly insecure -- it exposes
your filesystem to god and everyone. But it works, and if you enjoy
tinkering with XML files ...

I mentioned Serviio in a previous post.

The WD Live supports Samba, and I was using it that way until Apple
destroyed Samba in their latest big upgrated (10.7.x, or Lion). So I
moved to UPnP/DLNA and I'm glad I did. It seems much smoother.
Although, that's probably the subjective Warren-benchmark-suite "Hmm.
Seems smoother."

One of my customers has a WD Live Plus. He like to buy something at
Costco, use it for a month to see if it's any good, and then exchange
it for something else if it sucks. He's keeping this one. Every few
weeks, there's a firmware update which adds features and/or stations.
WD seems to be putting some effort into this product. I try to stay
away from video, audiophiles, and piracy which seem to go together.

My customers use Windoze, so I use Windoze. Follow the money, etc.

I have Playon server running on my laptop for testing multicast
wireless streaming. Let's just say we have a long way to go.

>I mentioned Serviio in a previous post.


I didn't know about that one. I'll try to break it.

DLNA is probably smoother. Samba was optimized for bi-directional
interactive data in short bursts while DLNA was made for
unidirectional streaming. (I'm guessing here).
